Edward Christie.

Finding solutions for environmental conflicts : power and negotiation. Edward Elgar, c2008.

K3585.C47 2008

 

Using an approach that integrates law, science, and alternative dispute resolution (ADR), this book assesses the key unifying principles of environmental and administrative law in Australia, the UK/EU and USA, together with accepted scientific concepts of environmental management and protection. By doing so it provides a cross-disciplinary approach to collaborative problem-solving and decision-making, using ADR processes to resolve environmental conflicts.

KF1309.5.D38 2008

 

This book studies the struggle to enforce international human rights law in US federal courts. The book examines attempts by human rights groups to use the Alien Tort Statute to enforce human rights norms. It explains the separation-of-powers issues that arise when victims sue the United States or when the United States intervenes to urge dismissal of a claim. Moreover, it analyzes the controversies arising from attempts to hold foreign nations, foreign officials, and corporations liable under international human rights law.
